Every minute a child dies from Malaria, a disease that is primarily caused by mosquito bites. The solution is seemingly simple, provide communities with insecticide treated nets to prevent mosquito’s from attacking people, while also killing the bugs to prevent other attacks. But in Africa, where the disease is most rampant, resources are limited.
Nothing But Nets is a United Way Foundations campaign that works with organizations to facilitate the supply, delivery, application and education of nets to communities in need. For every $10 donated, one net is delivered to potentially save one child from a deadly disease.
The Bloomington-Normal Jaycees are joining the Illinois Jaycees and getting involved. Please consider donating, and share this cause with friends, family and coworkers. This is a problem with a solution already created. It just needs help with funding to make a significant difference, a change for the world.
